Senate approves bed-bug bill
CONCORD - The war on bed bugs in New Hampshire is heating up as the Senate today passed House Bill 482, which outlines the parameters for dealing with bed-bug infestations and the responsibilities of landlords and tenants to remediate the problem.
The bill is a compromise among all the stakeholders, including tenants, landlords and municipalities. Proponents say the bill will allow a rapid response that clarifies the responsibilities for remedial action.
The bill grew out of the work of the Bed Bug Action Committee, bringing those affected by bed-bug infestations together to reach a compromise on the best methods to fight the problem.The bill now goes to governor.
